Work/Volunteer Abroad

Work/Internship/Co-op

In order to find an appropriate place to work abroad, students must do a lot of research to find out:

  1. Where can I go?
  2. How much does it cost?
  3. Does it fit my major?
  4. What kind of housing do they have?
  5. Do I need to know the language?
